<p>Opal Pratt shuns confrontation like a yard dog shuns a skunk. You’ll see her in 1950s rural Mississippi as a plain, reclusive spinster. She’s not afraid of people. She just avoids them. Yet, when push comes to the inevitable shove, she comes through – though perhaps reluctantly – for those she loves. In this collection, you’ll also meet the stripper, the pregnant teenager, the immigrant Baptist preacher, Opal’s only suitor, the county sheriff and his nearly out-of-control deputy, the blind shopkeeper, and Opal’s young friend, Billy. Step into Opal’s world where you will both cry for her and cheer her.</p>
